Love Cake February 2015

We're a month into the year already but more importantly for Love Cake it's a year since we started on our monthly cake baking challenges. Thank you to everyone who has joined in. I know several of you make a point of baking a cake especially for the monthly theme and for that I truly grateful. I'm always amazed by the variety of cakes that appear each month and last month's 'Feeling Fruity' was no exception. For the round up take a peek here.

With the combination of the Love Cake birthday month and St. Valentine's Day falling in February there has to be a lot of love around this month. Therefore the theme for February is FOR THE LOVE OF CAKE.

Use it as an excuse to get out your heart shaped tins and cutters. I would love to see plenty of red and pink cakes this month. If the romance of the month is not for you then tell me about what cake you love to bake and eat. I don't mind if your favourite is plain or fancy as all cake is welcome here. Since it is also the Love Cake birthday you can also share any birthday bakes you have made.

Here's how to join in:

1. Please make sure your entry conforms to this month's theme of FOR THE LOVE OF CAKE.

2. Post your photographs and description on your blog, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Tumblr or Google+ - just make sure they are for public viewing and can be seen by anyone. All photographs must be your own original image and not taken from another source. You can carefully style your photos or take a quick snap on your mobile – either is fine!
